I've played most of the original Ninja Gaiden games back in the late 80's / early 90's,
wouldn't call myself a fan of the series today... partly because I don't like
the direction the series went in. Rachel is actually a pretty good
example of this - because when I think "Ninja," I don't tend to
"blatantly sexualized blonde woman with huge breasts". -__- Catch my drift?
Rachel looks out of place in NG... but of course she fits
right in with the DOA cast, right? *rolls eyes* Visually, Rachel
has one of the sluttiest (and tackiest) outfits I've ever seen (and no, that's
not a good thing). Her fighting style is a weird mix of powerful
and.... Ninjitsu-ish moves? As I said, weird. She's a "big" girl and
hits hard, which makes sense I suppose, but there's not much exciting about her
62 moves. She doesn't have many throws and she has Sarah
Bryant's knee stomp thingy from VF2? (Reeeally, they couldn't give her a
different one???) She looks enough like Sarah as is. Ohh, but she does have her
"stripper walk" down pat, of course! Sorry, but if you really like Rachel as a
are very easily entertained.
